Georgia-Pacific has announced that it would discontinue the SBS operations at its Crossett, Arkansas, facility as of October 2019.

This involves the permanent shut-down of the SBS machines as well as the extrusion plant, woodyard, pulp mill and a significant portion of the energy complex at the Crossett mill. In July, Georgia-Pacific will also discontinue one of the mill's older and less competitive tissue machines. The measure will lead to a loss of 555 jobs at the mill, the company announced.
